Next year, 20th Century Studios will release in theaters around the world Kingdom of the Planet of the Apesfrom the director Wes Ball (Maze Runner), which, as previously announced, is a continuation of the acclaimed Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, y War for the Planet of the Apeswhich doesn't focus on Caesar (Andy Serkis).

To review, we remind you that the character died at the end of War for the Planet of the Apes. But the story continues to move forward.

This new delivery, which in our country is known as Planet of the Apes: New Kingdom, is the starting engine of a new trilogy, which places its plot 300 years after the events of War for the Planet of the Apes.

Taking into consideration Caesar's legacy and the meaning of “stronger together apes,” the plot now focuses on Noa, the new young hero of the kingdom of the planet of the apes, played in mo-cap by Owen Teague (IT).

Ball told Empire Magazine that his idea for what a new Planet of the Apes movie could be, he summed it up as: “Apocalpyto with apes”. Apocalypto is Mel Gibson's acclaimed 2006 film, applauded for its fast-paced action and moving story, about a fierce journey through a dangerous jungle in early 16th century Yucatan.

“The last two movies were about Caesar's Charge,” explains producer Joe Hartwick. “Like The Dark Knight, they felt heavy: super fun, but super intense. We are going in a different direction. Noa still has a burden, but she's involved in a different level of adventure, mainly because the character hasn't been exposed to the outside world before. “So we’re seeing him see the world for the first time.”

The medium shares some new art concepts that you find at the end of this note.

The script was written by Patrick Aison (Prey, Wayward Pines), Josh Friedman (Foundation, Snowpiercer, Avatar: The Way of Water, War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), y Amanda Silver (Avatar: The Way of Water, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).

The rest of the cast is made up Freya Allan (The Witcher), Dichen Lachman (Severance, Animal Kingdom), William H. Macy (Shameless, Fargo, The Dropout), Peter Macon (The Orville, Shameless), y Sara Wiseman (Shortland Street).

The movie will be released in theaters on May 24, 2024.
